Severance, Words and Other Things
October 2, 2012 § 6 Comments
Nicole of Words and Other Things was inspired after reading Severance by Robert Olen Butler, to write the last thoughts of a severed head. Click on her site above for the source of the challenge. I know – not my usual post, but it was just what I needed in the moment. Here’s my head on its last roll around:
ONE LAST ONE
Tiny minute shouts eternity for what was never done was said sweet seconds now remain of banquet scraps and grateful though I am most wishful for another day to play in laughter chocolate babies cooing like the dove in love green hand upon that precious heart teams trumpets round the air my hair these eyes for stars to hear as if the first again to be a bud enraptured gold with you proximity was never sought the owl’s call a salve wise, too, our mission here this time in nighthawk wings be quick as snowflakes melt fierce fires fan the seas my view a visionary’s postage stamp the fool skips on like honey.
